As the Los Angeles Lakers seemingly turn the corner on a otherwise disappointing season, one of the primary reasons for their resurgence is the heightened play of Dwight Howard. Not only is the All-Star center playing better, today he launches his new signature sneaker with adidas Basketball.

Designed to make Dwight faster and provide durability for his explosive play, the all-new D Howard Light will act as Howard’s sneaker for the second half of the season. His latest performance shoe boast a slimmed down frame atop Z-TORSION technology on the midsole. A “DH” logo appears on the fluorescent tongue while the black base is set-off by Laker purple contrasting.

Currently available at adidas accounts overseas, look for the D Howard Light stateside very soon.
